Smaug. [In reply to] Can't Post

He's fast, big and cunning, while the stone giants don't seem to have a lot going on in the brain department.

Celebrimbor: "Pretty rings..."
Dwarves: "Pretty rings..."
Men: "Pretty rings..."
Sauron: "Mine's better."

"Ah, how ironic, the addictive qualities of Sauronís master weapon led to its own destruction. Which just goes to show, kids - if you want two small and noble souls to succeed on a mission of dire importance... send an evil-minded beggar with them too." - Gandalf's Diaries, final par, by Ufthak.

Smaug [In reply to] Can't Post

A while back I posted Smaug v Three Stone Giants and decided in favor of the giants. http://newboards.theonering.net/...latest_reply;so=ASC;
That was before I saw TH:DOS
Now that I've seen Smaug I'll give it to him. A lone giant will get smashed into gravel. Even three, I now think.

Stone Giants [In reply to] Can't Post

I don't think Smaug's fire would much affect beings made of stone. He could try swatting them with his tail, and could bash them, but even if they were broken up into boulders, I think they'd regenerate - the bits and pieces would pile up, build up and eventually form new stone giants. So Smaug might win the battle, but the Stone Giants would win the war.

That's my theory, anyway Tongue.

that dragon fire could melt the great rings, which were impervious to everything else but volcanos. That means the heat of Smaug's hottest breath is comparable to lava, ergo, stone giants would melt.

Bet it would be a heck of a good fight, though.


They that go down to the sea in ships, that do business in great waters; These see the works of the Lord, and His wonders in the deep.
